But I really don't know poetry (much less international poets) well at all and I need suggestions of some foreign poems and poets we could look at in class. I'd prefer if they had good English translations for the sake of my classmates being able to understand them...but if you want to post a good poem with no translation or just supply a rough translation of your own to supplement it, that would be awesome too.
(Mandarin) Chinese, French, and German poems would be especially appreciated since there are students who would be able to read them well aloud in their original languages in the class. Also, poems that demonstrate certain poetic elements that are interesting because of aspects of how a particular language sounds or is structured would be cool. The amazing Chinese classical poetry I've heard so much about? Famous Japanese haikus maybe? Poems that demonstrate a particularly non-Anglophone or non-western concept, way of thinking, or approach to poetry?
Or just anything you feel like sharing! Vielen Dank.
